Advent Calendar – December 9th

An eerie treat behind today’s Literary Advent Calendar, chosen by Claire Fuller, author of  Our Endless Numbered Days.

Claire has chosen We Have Always Lived in the Castle by Shirley Jackson.

Claire says: ‘I didn’t read We Have Always Lived in the Castle until about five years ago, but since I discovered it, I re-read it a couple of times a year. It’s a novella really, at 158 pages, but densely packed with an amazing story about the poisonings of the Blackwood family. It’s eerie and mysterious, with strange and wonderful characters and a house that is as odd as its inhabitants.’
